Thanks :) pretty good stuff on there can't wait for tax time so I can knock out most of the bolt ons. Also I've looked into an aluminum driveshaft but some ppl have told me not to get one. Wats ur opinion on tht?

I figured it would compliment the 4.10s along with a set of underdrive pullies which will be one of the next mods.

I don't know why they don't think you should get one. :confused:
I have one, but it isn't installed yet. They are great for reducing your rotating mass and they dampen minute vibrations. I'd say get one if you want it. :good:

Throttle body, MAF housing, MAF sensor, intake, better ignition... The list can go on and on. It all depends on what you want and how much you want to spend.

I've already got the street fire coil msd cap 9mm Ford racing wires and Bosch platinum plugs. I've noticed a lot better throttle response with those upgrades I'm looking to get a msd distributor and the ignition box soon.

No worries man thts why I ask yall for input. I really didn't do the research on the coil I just grabbed one up when I did my tuneup it needed it bad the old one was burnt up which is prolly why I noticed the better throttle response and Wat not.

They are pretty close in voltage output with the Street Fire actually coming in higher at 48K volts and the Blaster at 44K volts. The Street Fire also has a slightly higher Peak Current with a slightly lower Spark Duration than the Blaster. What that means is that the Street Fire will deliver more power, but at slightly less duration than the Blaster.

What really matters is that either one will serve equally well in his case and they are both better than a stock coil. :good:

The Trick Flow HCI kit will net you around 350 HP at the crankshaft.
